Summary Sociologist Lawrence-Lightfoot (Balm in Gilead) coins the term Third Chapter to describe the rich possibilities as illustrated in her extended interviews with 40 well-educated, affluent Americans. Founding her thesis on classic formulations of life-stage development, particularly that of Erik Erikson, the author offers a wide range of models for people who feel burned out, restless or dissatisfied with their lives, describing how each of her subjects became a different person... Readers feeling that something is missing from their lives, that there is something more they can contribute, will find this book a helpful guide.
